Noir—a name that strikes fear in the hearts of those who know the history behind the moniker. Long ago it was the code name of a very successful and feared assassin and now it is being used by two women who want answers to questions they have about their lives. The main character in this series is a highly skilled assassin named Mireille Bouquet who is based out of France. One day, she receives a mysterious email from a girl named Kirika. Following up on the message, Mireille goes to meet this girl and discovers that not only does the girl have no idea who she really is, but she also has no idea why she is so skilled at killing people and why she feels no remorse when she does. Realizing that their lives are linked somehow, Mireille and Kirika team up and begin traveling the world together as they seek out the answers to their shared histories, while avoiding the grip of an organization known as Les Soldats. Will the two find the answers they are looking for? And will that truth free them, or ruin them?

It’s great, if you’re looking for something close to spy action.


Super slick and stylish. One of Mashimo’s best directing efforts, animation-wise. But story is lacking compared to later Bee Train series.


I like characters with a disturbed world view. Someone here drops a real gem in, “if love can kill a person, surely hatred can save them.”


By far the WORST show I have ever watched. Bored the ever-loving shit out of me. Would give -10 rating if possible.


give it a try that really nice i would say this one is probably a classic


Best thing about this is the OST lol


Solitude by the Window



    I make bad encodes and whine about subs and if I'm feeling particularly memey, I make bad subs too!
